England drop Roy for fifth Ashes Test

Simply sensational

The Australian bowling attack has also fired, proving too much for England's fragile batting.

"Mitch has worked his backside off actually for the last six or seven months", Paine said. "You might see some changes through the winter but a few of the guys looked like they were trying to do the right things and really gutsed it out on that last day [at Old Trafford] so we've chose to give them another opportunity".

"That's something Mitch has watched up close and something he's aspiring to, so certainly when he's fitter his bowling goes to another level".

"The 37-year-old added that going forward, England must learn how to strike a balance between all formats of the game".

Smith is banned from leadership roles until March because of his involvement in a Cape Town ball-tampering scandal previous year but he is tipped by some former players and leading cricket writers to regain the captaincy from wicketkeeper Paine after his batting heroics in England. Coach Justin Langer admitted that Head was "disappointed" to be dropped, but said the team needs an "extra bowling (option) after a long series". Because I've still got a real hunger and desire to play cricket. "We think he's had a fantastic start, he's played 10 Tests and has a very healthy average but we want to get the make-up right to win this Test match and unfortunately we had to make a really tough call on someone, and it happened to be Travis".

The England and Wales Cricket Board confirmed that Ben Stokes would play as a specialist batsman due to a shoulder injury.

She was initially charged in March and released from jail after three days and she had waited six months for her trial. Although there is no official ban in place, women in Iran are often refused entry as reported by the BBC .

"But ultimately we need to focus on the core group of players that are going to lead this team forward both home and away and build from that and towards winning in Australia".

"We keep looking at different ways for sure, trying different things", he said.

As far as Australia are concerned, the only change they have made to their 12-man squad is the inclusion of all-rounder Mitchell Marsh instead of batsman Travis Head. "Give them another half a day, see how they've pulled up and then make a decision on that side, the final make-up of it".

"We've been really pleased with what James has done in his return to test cricket over here", Paine said.

"We spoke a lot about how we felt we needed to change the way we picked our attacks over in England". We had our chances when they were 120-8 in the first Test, second Test we finished on top and the game was a draw and the third Test, Australia could have won that and the first two so, as I said, it could have been 3-0 either way.
